    Some very wonderful cannondales hereI really like also the old caad 4 to caad 7 frames. The finish of the welds is also fantastic.

    I had a talk with my friend Hector at my LBS yesterday. He said that BB30 bearings, because they are press fit, WILL creak. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them. He looked the BB on my CAAD over and said it was well lubed and the bearings were tight - don't worry about the creaking it's bound to develop. Keep it cleaned and lubed, and it will be fine.

    I believe the experience of most is that they only creak when not installed properly with loctite.

    Nice bike. Quick notes though:

    Your saddle is pointing slightly nose-down. It should be level.
    The drops of your bars should be parallel to the ground; they are tilted a bit past that. I dig the classic bend, though.

    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    Thanks, Jandro! I think the Rotundo is the closest thing I could find to the classic Cinelli bars, and that's what I was going for.

    And I think you're right about the saddle and bars. Good eye. For extra credit, can you see why I never got a chance to correct them on this frame? You might have to blow the picture up.

    Thanks, guys! I already had the alloy Athena kit and the Thomson seatpost from a previous build, so the matching stem was an obvious choice, especially since the -17 version is a good match for the CAAD10 top tube. Chose the white tape and saddle to keep it simple and clean.

    I picked this frame up a few months ago, at the end of the 2012 model year, and the REP scheme was all they could track down in my size - 60cm. My first choice would have been the Gulf blue & orange scheme, but I really like the way this one turned out.

    I have to say that that's a nice bike. Shows how long a c'dale can last if you take even reasonable care of it.

    This is one of the nicest colourways on a Cannondale I have seen in a long while, very unique paint and graphics on the bike and the build grouppo sounds very well thought out.

I am getting a new 10 soon myself, I am waiting for the 2014 models to come out before I jump on something though.

    Thank you for the reply seymour1910!

    Yup I also thought that the 9spd Tiagra is kinda old al;ready (and I even heard that the 11spd 105 will come out next year). Regarding the CAAD9's paint scheme, I find it too bright but I think I can make it a little less whiter by changing its saddle and bartape to black.



    Still undecided which one to choose because the CAAD10: is lighter, has better comonents (105) and has nicer color. I think the very reason why I'm holding on to CAAD9 is probably because it is MIA (Made In America) and can be upgraded to better components later. I know that this CAAD9 vs CAAD10 has been on various bike-related forums for almost 3 years now (and I've actually read a lot of it). Is the 2013 CAAD10 better than the MIA CAAD9? If it is then I would go for the 10.

    My lbs doesnt have a 10 in stock now, only the 9. Have test riden already and it's very good.

    Bike looks great. Where did they get a new caad9 from? I thought they discontinued them when the 10's came out.

    Did you already buy it or thinking about it? I'd grab it. It's an end of era thing and also rides great. Maybe the 10 is better but I think a 9 is a future classic.

    iFold....please don't be mistaken, the CAAD9 is a great bike and you will not be upset with owning it. Heck I am still riding my CAAD7 with eight year old 105/Ultegra and have zero issues. Get the best deal you can and go for it.

    Hi bikerjp, Yes I thought of that too (as many have called it "last of its breed").


    This bike's already been reserved for me and will get end of this month. But I've informed my dealer too that I'm having second thought whether to get the 9 or 10. Thanks!

    Based on the reviews about CAAD9, yes, I'd agree that this is a great race machine. My LBS has actually put this bike on sale (from $1750 down to $1350 (140,000yen), still expensive though).
